Arsenal have been hit hard in their mission to rope in Napoli striker Lorenzo Insigne as the player’s agent confirmed he doesn’t want to leave his current club.

The 24-year-old was heavily linked with a move to Arsenal but the player’s agent, Antonio Ottaiano, in an interview to Radio CRC revealed: “His contract expires in 2019 and Lorenzo Insigne has repeatedly said that he wants to stay at Napoli for life

“If all the prerequisites are in place for it to happen, the engagement will become a marriage. The club believes in Lorenzo, they consider him crucial to the future of Napoli.

“The big clubs saw Lorenzo as an exciting prospect at first, now they’re probably casting admiring glances at him. They’ll have to give up, though, Lorenzo is a Napoli player until 2019, and not only is he happy, and he wants to win in a blue shirt.”

However, Arsenal planned to reignite their interest in the Italian striker in the January transfer window, as the 24-year-old versatile striker is in magnificent form for Napoli this season. He can also comfortably fit in the midfield role. That’s what Arsene Wenger is looking for.

Insigne has bagged 6 goals and provided three valuable assists for his team in eight Serie A matches this year.
